What you are hearing are just Courtney’s isolated vocal and guitar mics. Someone please stab me in the ears with a steak knife immediately!
Almost all rap battles are a duel of wits and machismo. Participants put down their opponents with the most clever and crowd-pleasing insults they can come up with on the fly. As a result, several battles end in fisticuffs, brawls, and near riots. That’s why it’s refreshing to see the rap duo of Shuffle-T and Marlo take a different approach to their battle with fellow British rappers Big J and Lefty. Battling during a Don’t Flop Entertainment event, both teams decided that instead of attacking their opponents they would prop them up with compliments and heavy-handed flattery instead.
Atlanta emcee Lecrae was the special guest on Sway in the Morning today. During his time on air, he spoke about being a Christian in hop hop and not liking the “Christian rapper” label, dealing with groupies, his upcoming album Anomaly (9/9) and more.

As the weather begins to get a little cooler in America, that only means one thing. It’s almost time for ‘Cuffing Season.’ For those who don’t know, ‘Cuffing Season’ is the time of the year during the cooler months where people tend to leave their promiscuous summer ways behind in order to not be alone during the holidays and the winter days. However, as Lil Dicky from Philadelphia points out, there are certain downsides to being in a relationship in his latest video for “Lemme Freak.”
“Hey guys, I honestly think this may be the best video I’ve ever made. We went to the hood with a boom box and I rapped with the homies. At first I was nervous because when I was practicing my freestyles in the car I couldn’t rhyme very well, lets just say I was having an off day but once I got out there I think I did alright.” – BigDawsTv
In today’s ‘cringe so hard you fall backwards off your chair’ news, Kanye West recently stopped his entire show to scream ‘stand up and dance!’ at two people. One was in a wheelchair and the other had prosthetic limbs. ‘I can’t do this song, I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t,’ he yelled. Then a fan waved a prosthetic limb at him, and he was forced to start the song after replying: ‘Okay, you fine!’ Then, when another fan remained seated, he stopped ‘The Good Life’ and complained: ‘This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable,’ before getting his bodyguard to double-check that the fan was, in fact, in a wheelchair. Way to make them feel comfortable, Kanye.
Will DJs eventually get replaced with technology? Watch Colombian DJ Natalia Paris get caught red handed doing absolutely nothing on her decks during her set. Talk about an easy job. Who ever paid her to DJ that night is going to be salty when they see this footage. If you look at the timers on the decks, they aren’t playing anything. Her laptop is probably directly connected to the speakers. Hilarious. Those knobs will slip if you don’t hold them though. Tricky little buggers those things.
